MADISON (WKOW) -- Gov. Scott Walker transferred $100,000 to his legal defense fund he established related to an ongoing criminal probe that's already ensnared some of his former aides and associates in Milwaukee County. That's according to his latest campaign finance report.
The governor's campaign finance report was filed with the state on Tuesday. It shows transfers of $70,000 and $30,000 out of his campaign account to the Scott Walker Trust. Previously, Walker transferred $60,000 into the account.
Walker's Democratic challenger in next week's recall election, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, has repeatedly called on the governor to reveal who is paying for his legal defense fund. Walker has refused to say.
According to campaign finance reports, Walker raised $5.1 million between April 24 and May 21. Reports say Barrett raised $3.1 million during the same time.
At this point, Walker has raised about $31 million compared to Barrett's $4.3 million for the June 5 recall election.
